Screamworks: Love In Theory And Practice - Lyrics & Info

1. In Venere veritas

Let’s fall apart together now

Zipping Cupid in a bodybag well worn
Next to the mausoleum he was born in
Picking up the pieces of this gory glory of it all
From eve to morn, for Eve to mourn

Have no fear
There are wounds that are not meant to heal              
And they sing
In Venere Veritas

Come inside
Let the fire burn you alive
And sing, baby sing
There are wounds that are not meant to heal at all
In Venere Veritas

Let’s fall apart together now

There’s a method to our sadness
As we drag the mirrorball and chain
Through the twilight again
Dressed up in shame

Have no fear
There are wounds that are not meant to heal
And they sing
In Venere Veritas

Come inside
Let the fire burn you alive
And sing, baby sing
There are wounds that are not meant to heal at all

In Venere Veritas

We are begging for a reflection
from a unshuttered heart
To blind and chase us over the edge

Have no fear
There are wounds that are not meant to heal
And they say
In Venere Veritas

Come inside
Let the fire burn you alive
And sing, baby sing
There are wounds that are not meant to heal at all

In Venere Veritas

These are wounds that are not meant to heal at all
Let’s fall apart together now

2. Scared to death

In the biblical sense and sensibility
Let me know you
I’ll kiss that smile off your face

Just say when
Just say when

I’m not afraid to say I love you
Any more than I used to be babe
I’m scared to death
I’m scared to death to fall in love

All these pick-up lines from hell
Icebreakers infernal
From a heart so black and blue
Only for you

Just say when, again

I’m not afraid to say I love you
Anymore that I used to be babe
I’m scared to death
I’m scared to death to fall in love

With you

I’m not afraid to say I love you
Anymore that I used to be babe
I’m scared to death
I’m scared to death to fall in love

With you

I’m not afraid to admit I adore you
Anymore than I was before, babe
I’m scared to death
I’m scared to death to fall in love

With you

3. Heartkiller

Farewell heartless world
I'll send you a postcard burnt
In the flames you’ve tried so hard
to extinguish with fear of failing

I’ll write down everything I have learned
and edit it down to a single word: Love…
For you I'm waiting, anticipating

Sparks will fly beneath the luna alight
Lazarus at Frankenstein's
Babe, I’ll be a flatliner for a heartkiller

A little we die above the lesser light
For you I’m open wide
Babe, I’ll be a flatliner for a heartkiller
Heartkiller

Top hats up to the return
of the beat to lick a wound to
Cursed for some and blessed for a few

It doesn’ t have to make any sense at all
Come hither and we'll fall
In love for love

I’m crawling out of patience baby

Sparks will fly beneath the luna alight
Lazarus at Frankenstein's
Babe, I’ll be a flatliner for a heartkiller

A little we die above the lesser light
For you I’m open wide
Babe, I’ll be a flatliner for a heartkiller

Heartkiller

Paint all your sorrows for me to sing: Heartkiller
Draw your pain and and hear me hum it out

Sparks will fly beneath the luna alight
Lazarus at Frankenstein's
Babe, I’ll be a flatliner for a heartkiller

A little we die above the lesser light
For you I’m open wide
Babe, I’ll be a flatliner for a heartkiller

Heartkiller

4. Dying song

I’ve seen you breathe
Life into the weakest of hearts
And heard you scream aloud
The sweetest poem

Echoeing across the ocean
Reminding me why I still try
To hold on to whatever is left
Of you and I

Shedding skin to a dying song
We hum along to the evening sun
‘til we are no more

Little deaths to a dying song
Sounds a lot like life

I’ve seen these dreams
Being crushed by a single thought
And felt the envy and sadness
Engulf all warmth

Barely alive under ice
By exchanging sighs
With tomorrow quivering
In the loneliest light

Shedding skin to a dying song
We hum along to the evening sun
‘til we are no more

Little deaths to a dying song
Sound a lot like life and love
Life and love
With you

Crawl back into bed
Tomorrow is trembling at the sight
Of you and I

Shedding skin to a dying song
We’re holding hands to the evening sun
‘til we are no more

Little deaths to a dying song
Sounds a lot like life and love
Life and love

Life and love
With you

5. Disarm me (With your loneliness)

A promise of Heaven
Pushed us right back to Hell
Turned three sevens into three sixes again

You laughed at my face
When I told you how much it hurts
And said

Disarm me with your loneliness
Just like always before
Deceive me out of my emptiness
Telling me how you love

You keep on tempting me
To go on whatever the cost
To witness the prettiest flower
in bloom wither to dust

So I break all the rules
In this endless game once called love
For you

Disarm me with your loneliness
Just like always before
Deceive me out of my emptiness
Telling me how you love

Me with all your heart
No more

Disarm me with your loneliness
Just like always before
Disarm me with your loneliness
Just like always before

Deceive me out of my emptiness
Telling me how you love
Me with all your heart
No more

Tell me how much you miss
My warmth
No more

Tell me how my kiss
Will change your world
No more

Tell me how much it hurts
To be alone
No more

Lie to me how much you love
Me with all your heart

No more

6. Love, the hardest way

Love's the devil counting teardrops in the rain
to the sound of a chalkboard symphony played with nails
For what is worth
I don't want to see you hurt anymore
Than you have to

Dine on glass
wine on blood
Baby love the hard way

Baudelaire in braille
Baby love the harder way

Once you lose yourself entomb
I promise you love the hardest way

Pretty like a flower on a tomb you are
Kissed blue by the last arrows of the sun
Olly olly oxen free
Free hide and go weep no more
Unless you want to

Dine on glass
wine on blood
baby love the hard way

Baudelaire in braille
baby love the harder way

Once you lose yourself entomb
I promise you love the hardest way

7. Katherine Wheel

Lo and behold baby
These are the things you make me do
Katherine Wheel I’m burning for you
I’m burning for you

Come on and break me a limb at a time
Wrap me around your spokes so tight
There’ s no letting go

Spin me around to blur the line
Between you and I
What are you waiting for?

Lo and behold baby
These are the things you make me do
Katherine Wheel I’m burning for you
I’m burning for you

Please don’t stop
Until my heart no longer screams
Katherine Wheel
Katherine Wheel

Holding hands won’t be enough
In a world giving head to a gun
Love in theory and practice
Chapter one

Lo and behold baby
These are the things you make me do
Katherine Wheel I’m burning for you
I’m burning for you

Please don’t stop
Until my heart no longer screams
Katherine Wheel
Katherine Wheel

I twist and turn
In your arms swirl
The dizzier I get, the clearer I see
With you I’m at peace with the war within

Lo and behold baby
These are the things you make me do
Katherine Wheel I’m burning for you
I’m burning for you

Please don’t stop
Until my heart no longer screams (*)
Katherine Wheel
Katherine Wheel

(*) versione acustica:
Please don't stop
Until my heart no longer dreams of you, Katherine
Won't you break this wheel?

8. In the arms of rain

Once again we found ourselves to be lost
Holding hands while straying from the path
in a forest dark
Aren't you happy to see me crawl serpentine towards the sun to you?

Lift the lid of your heart's casket in the arms of rain
We’ll drift along this river of sadness 'til we feel no pain

Baby it's the Hail Marys for the secret you kept from me
Hail Marys for tomorrow's dream
In the arms of rain we are free

Again, I fought myself and lost
Come bite the apple and I'll coil around your heart
I'm so happy to see you weep along in these arms you belong

Lift the lid of your heart's casket in the arms of rain
We’ll drift along this river of sadness 'til we feel no pain

Baby it's the Hail Marys for the secret you kept from me
Hail Marys for tomorrow's dream
In the arms of rain we are free

Ave Maria we've tried
Ave Maria we've cried
Ave Maria we've died

Lift the lid of your heart's casket in the arms of rain
We’ll drift along this river of sadness 'til we feel no pain

Baby it's the Hail Marys for the secret you kept from me
Hail Marys for tomorrow's dream
In the arms of rain

Lift the lid of your heart's casket in the arms of rain
We’ll drift along this river of sadness 'til we feel no pain
Baby it's the Hail Marys for the secret you kept from me
Hail Marys
In the arms of rain we are free

It's the end of the road, hold me
It's the end of the road and we're free

9. Ode to solitude

Easy on the eyes, uneasy on the heart
Sew my wrists shut
Sew my wrists shut

With hope
Striding to the light
Shining bright

I dare you to dream this
and I dare you to dream this gone
What I want to know is
which makes you smile less

Here’s to the pain,
the light of the oncoming train
Come on
Ode to solitude in chains

Here’s to the pain
as always heaven in flames
Now bleeding
Ode to solitude in chains

Map the scars of the heart
Bruised and torn
Loosen the noose love
Loosen the noose with love

What I want to know is why you
Keep me hanging

Here’s to the pain,
the light of the oncoming train
Now come on
Ode to solitude in chains

Here’s to the pain
as always heaven in flames
Now bleeding
Ode to solitude in chains

If I should fail (and I will)
To stay (I’m leaving)
Remember not to forget
this feeling you have

You’re still afraid
I've failed
Please pretend it’s never happened babe

Here’s to the pain,
the light of the oncoming train
Come on
Ode to solitude in chains

Here’s to the pain
as always heaven in flames
Now bleeding
Ode to solitude in chains

10. Shatter me with hope

The girl who cried love
want you come and play with me?
You can be Cassandra
Underneath the sword of Democles

We'll tear this baby apart,
Wise like Solomon
Run, come shatter me now,
Shatter me with hope
Crawl come breathe me in,
Bleed out all sorrows

Scream me a dream
Untouched by shadows
Baby shatter me now with hope

She'll be the witness
To the repose of Evelyn
Push the needle in
To the canticles of ecstasy

Turn to page 43
And you'll know how I feel

Run, come shatter me now,
Shatter me with hope
Crawl come breathe me in,
Bleed out all sorrows

Scream me a dream
Untouched by shadows
Baby shatter me now with hope

Swear on your heart's
Grave I'm wrong
And love like your life's depending on it
Because it is

We'll tear this baby apart,
Wise like Solomon
Turn to page 43
And you'll know how I feel

Run, come shatter me now,
Shatter me with hope
Crawl come breathe me in,
Bleed out all sorrows

Scream me a dream
Untouched by shadows
Baby shatter me now with hope

11. Acoustic Funeral
(For love in Limbo)


You missed the winter
And it followed you back home
Where sun kisses the crimson footsteps
In the melting snow

We are doing our best
To disown the golden mean
By these acts of cruelty
In the name of beauty to be free

The acoustic funeral for love in limbo
We’re dancing with tags on our toes
I save my last breath for your window
To write you this song
For the acoustic funeral

On the verge of a vow
To kill all reason locking that door
To a nightmare within a nightmare
We are bound to adore

Let the planchette
in the shape of a heart
Glide to oui
And finally confirm all fears
To be so real
(it's unreal)

The acoustic funeral for love in limbo
We’re dancing with tags on our toes
I save my last breath for your window
To write you this song
For the acoustic funeral

Underneath the ice so thin
I am turning blue

The one last thing
I know to be real
Is the shadow of you
Killing love with a kiss

The acoustic funeral for love in limbo
We’re dancing with tags on our toes
I save my last breath for your window
To write you this song

The acoustic funeral for love in limbo
We’re dancing with tags on our toes

I save my last breath for your window
To write you this song
For the acoustic funeral

Let’s re-enact the fall
To the acoustic funeral
Killing love with a kiss

12. Like St. Valentine

In the name of love lost
I'm frozen to her and I want you to come build me a bridge
Soaked in gasoline and pass the torch

Hey baby let me be your valentine, St Valentine,
Suck the sorrow out of you and try to keep the lie alive
Like St Valentine

Like the couple from Pompei
our drama's put on display
Along with a dove, stuffed

In a coffin of glass entitled
Love, Lust & the Holy Ghost
Those were the days

Hey baby let me be your valentine, St Valentine,
Suck the sorrow out of you and try to keep the lie alive

Hey baby let me be your Valentine, St Valentine
Suck the sorrow out of you and tryto keep a lie alive
Like Saint Valentine

Love's the only war worth dying for
Lift me up to knock me down,
I'm all yours for now

Hey baby let me be your Valentine, St Valentine, (Valentine)
Suck the sorrow out of you and try to keep a lie alive. (Lie alive)
Hey baby let me be your Valentine, St Valentine, (Valentine)
Suck the sorrow out of you and try to keep a lie alive
Like Saint Valentine

Hey baby let me your valentine, St Valentine,
Hey baby let me your valentine, St Valentine,
Hey baby let me your valentine, St Valentine,
Hey baby let me your valentine, St Valentine,
Like Saint Valentine.

13. The foreboding sense of impending happiness

By your heartstrings
I am hanging from a dream
Gently swinging in the warm autumn breeze

Come look at the scars
Smother a heart
Opening up

Look at the scars
Smother a heart
Opening up

No more

Tiptoeing along a strand
of your hair
Suspended by these thoughts and actions
Miles above reality

Come look at the scars
Smother a heart
Opening up

Look at the scars
Smother a heart
Opening up
No more

Venus Doom - Lyrics & Info

1. Venus Doom

Leave all behind now to watch her crawl
Through our dark gardens of insanity
She’ll be the light to guide you back home
Just give her a kiss worth dying for
And open your arms

Watch me fall for you my venus doom
Hide my heart where all dreams are entombed
My venus doom
All dreams are of you
My venus doom

Grieve all your hearts out and she’ll writhe enthralled
In tragic ecstatic agony
And in her flames we will die some more
Just show me a life worth living for
And light up the dark

Hold me inside your infernal offering
Touch me as I fall
Don’t lose yourself in this suffering yet
Hold on

2. Love In Cold Blood

Serpentine love’s thighs wrap around me in search for death
Drenched in blood the adored and beloved will give in to…

Love in cold blood
Breathe me in sweet suffering
Love in cold blood
Put me out of my misery

Love’s feline eyes in darkness shine on her web
Demonised with divine insight we draw our last breath

Darling take me home
To the castle made of skulls and bones
Sing me a song to remind me where I belong
In your arms, my love, in cold blood

3. Passion's Killing Floor

It’s poetry carved in flesh
This beautiful hell of ours
To the deadliest sin we confess
And tears of joy fill our eyes

We are safe where disfigured saints
Cry out their prophecies of doom

My heart’s a graveyard baby
And to evil we make love
On our passion’s killing floor
In my arms you won’t sleep safely
And of lust we are reborn
On our passion’s killing floor

At the first kiss the seeds of hatred are sown
And back into darkness we flee to tear our hearts out

We are safe where all faiths fail
Alive inside of our tomb

Song Info

4. The Kiss Of Dawn

Blinded I am and so are you by shedding tears
The confusion that separates us two we hold dear

Just look into my eyes and kiss our fears goodbye

I’m reaching for your shadow drowning in the kiss of dawn
Touching the pain that you left me with at the kiss of dawn

I’m tired of the games I’m playing with you when you’re not here
“Death frees from the fear of dying”, it’s true, have no fear
Let me look into your eyes and see death pass us by

5. Sleepwalking Past Hope

I hid the keys to unlock love’s heart
To hold you in my sweetest pain and suffering
Everything’s unfair in our lust and war
Redemption beyond right and wrong

In our hearts love keeps sweet-talking to despair
And goes on sleepwalking past hope
All is lost in this war
And all we can do is to wail and weep to the saddest song
Sleepwalking past hope

I unlit the light to embrace the dark
To be near but not to turn into you my darling
Forever we’re lost in our souls’ storm
Reflections of each other’s faults

I gave up long ago
Painting love with crimson flow
Ran out of blood and hope
So I paint you no more

My hell begins from the 10th and descends to the circle
Six hundred threescore and six
And from there I crawl beneath Lucifer’s claws just for one last kiss

6. Dead Lovers' Lane

Despair has a face and all these wounds remain unhealed
Blessed to kill and enslaved are all hearts around love’s will
Thrilled to start all over again

Crawl down dead lovers’ lane
The maze of memories stained
And suck the blood right out of my heart
Scream out love’s name in vain
Embrace the pain again
And lose yourself alone in the dark
On dead lovers’ lane

Fear has a name written on unhallowed ground with dead leaves
Those words never fail to feed the hunger that dreams
Our needs beyond god’s grasp

8. Bleed Well

You had demons to kill within you screaming
With a gun loaded with guilt you opened their eyes

Love preys the living and praises the dead
In the heart of our hearts by death we were wed

Bleed well the soul you’re about to sell for passion deranged
Kiss and tell, baby we’re bleeding well
Bleed well the heart you’re about to fail for reasons insane
Kill and tell, baby we’re bleeding well…
…In hell

“No love lost under her will”, I heard you weeping
And on those words a church was built to keep the pain in

If death is the answer to love’s mysteries
Then bleed on my darling to the sound of a dream

Song Info
The single is available on iTunes Music Store since 18 November 2007.
The maxi-single is available since 9 December 2007, but according to cdon.com, it is been released on 7 November 2007.

9. Cyanide Sun

Should’ve known how hard it is to stop tearing each other apart
Separating souls entwined with all these labyrinthine lies

I am dead to you, a shadow doomed
My love, forever in the dark
And of all untruths the truest is you
Too close to my heart

This emptiness I’ve made my home
Embracing memories of dreams long gone
One last caress from the corpse of love is all I want
Underneath the cyanide sun

We’ve sailed the seas of grief on a raft built with our tears
Looking for a way to disappear for a moment from our deepest fears

I’ll be drowning you in this river of gloom
Forever in my heart

11. Hand Of Doom (Black Sabbath)

What you gonna do?
Time's caught up with you
Now you wait your turn
You know there's no return
Take your written rules
You join the other fools
Turn to something new
Now it's killing you

First it was the bomb
Vietnam napalm
Disillusioning
You push the needle in

From life you escape
Reality's that way
Colours in your mind
Satisfy your time

Oh, you, you know you must be blind
To do something like this
To take the sleep that you don't know
You're giving death a kiss
Fool, little fool now

Your mind is full of pleasure
Your body's looking ill
To you it's shallow leisure
So drop the acid pill
Don't stop to think now

You're having a good time, baby
But that won't last
Your mind's all full of things
You're living too fast

Go out enjoy yourself
Don't bottle it in
You need someone to help you
To stick the needle in, yeah

Now you know the scene
Your skin starts turning green
Your eyes no longer seeing
Life's reality

You push the needle in
And face death's sickly grin
Holes are in your skin
Caused by deadly pin

Head starts spinning 'round
You fall down to the ground
Feel your body heave
Death's hands starts to wave

It's too late to turn
You don't want to learn
But price of life you cry
And now you're gonna die

Dark Light - Lyrics & Info

1. Vampire Heart

You can't escape the wrath of my heart
Beating to your funeral song (You're so alone)                 
All faith is lust for hell regained
And love dust in the hands of shame (Just be brave)

Let me bleed you this song of my heart deformed
And lead you along this path in the dark
Where I belong until I feel your warmth

Hold me like you held on to life
When all fears came alive and entombed me
Love me like you loved the sun
Scorching the blood in my vampire heart

I'll be the thorns in every rose
You've been sent by hope (You'll grow cold)
I am the nightmare waking you up
From the dream of a dream of love (Just like before)

Let me weep you this poem as Heaven's gates close
And paint you my soul, scarred and alone
Waiting for your kiss to take me back home

Hold me like you held on to life
When all fears came alive and entombed me
Love me like you loved the sun
Scorching the blood in my vampire heart

Hold me like you held on to life
When all fears came alive and entombed me
Love me like you loved the sun
Scorching the blood in my vampire HEART

Hold me like you held on to life
Like you held on to life
When all fears came alive and entombed me
My vampire heart

Love me like you loved the sun
Like you love the sun
Scorching the blood in my, my vampire heart




Song Info
Ville says he loves this title because it's very Gothic, and this had a big influence on them. It sounds like a mix of Halloween by John Carpenter and Alice by The Sisters of Mercy.

2. Rip Out the Wings of a Butterfly

Heaven ablaze in our eyes
We're standing still in time
The blood on our hands is the wine
We offer as sacrifice

[Chorus]
Come on, and show them your love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul, my love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul

This endless mercy mile
We're crawling side by side
With hell freezing over in our eyes
Gods kneel before our crime

[Chorus]
Come on and show, them your love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul, my love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul
(Rip out the wings of a butterfly)
Don’t let go
(Rip out the wings of a butterfly)
For your soul

[Chorus]
Come on and show them your love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul, my love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul
(Rip out the wings of a butterfly)
Don't let go
(Rip out the wings of a butterfly)
For your soul
(Rip out the wings of a butterfly)
Don't let go (my love)
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul




Song Info
About the song, Ville says it's one of his favorites because it's celebratory. It 's really fucking sweet and tender like when a child rips out the wings of a butterfly. E' philosophical, but with a little of Billy Jean - Michael Jackson in the verses.

3. Behind The Crimson Door

Covered the carcass of time with flowers
To send the scent of blame to the grave
Set the darkest thoughts on fire
And watched the ashes climb to Heaven's gates

We hide behind the crimson door
While the summer is killed by the fall
Alive behind the crimson door
While the winter sings:
"Your love will be the death of me" (Death of me)
"Your love will be the death of me"

Death served wine for lovers
Brought from the world where devils reign
And intoxicated angels with sorrow
They witnessed in the eyes of their slaves

We hide behind the crimson door
While the summer is killed by the fall
Alive behind the crimson door
While the winter sings:
"Your love will be the death of me" (Death of me)
"Your love will be the death of me"

We hide behind the crimson door
While the summer is killed by the fall
Alive behind the crimson door
while the winter sings:
"Your love will be the death of me" (Death of me)
"Your love will be the death of me"

We hide behind the crimson door
While the summer is killed by the fall
Alive behind the crimson door
while the winter sings:
"Your love will be the death of me" (Death of me)
"Your love will be the death of me"

We hide behind the crimson door
We hide behind the crimson door
We hide behind the crimson door
We hide behind the crimson door


Song Info
Avout the song, ville says it's a Gothic track he wrote in five minutes sitting on a bench in Los Angeles in a moment of inspiration. They called it Kajagoogoo when they first played it, 'cause it has a soft beginning but when the guitars starts beating it's super-heavy.

4. Killing Loneliness

Memories, sharp as daggers
Pierce into the flesh of today
The suicide of love took away all that matters
And buried the remains in an unmarked grave in your heart

With the venomous kiss you gave me
I'm killing loneliness (Killing loneliness)
With the warmth of your arms you saved me,
Oh, I'm killing loneliness with you
The killing loneliness that turned my heart into a tomb
I'm killing loneliness

Nailed to a cross, together
As solitude begs us to stay
And we disappear in the lie, forever
And denounce the power of death over our souls
and secret words are said to start a war

With the venomous kiss you gave me
I'm killing loneliness
(Killing loneliness)
With the warmth of your arms you saved me
Oh, I'm killing loneliness with you
The killing loneliness that turned my heart into a tomb
I'm killing loneliness
I'm killing loneliness)

I'm killing loneliness

With the venomous kiss you gave me
I'm killing loneliness
(Killing loneliness)
With the warmth of your arms you saved me
Oh, I'm killing loneliness with you
The killing loneliness that turned my heart into a tomb
I'm killing loneliness

I'm killing loneliness with you
I'm killing loneliness with you
Killing loneliness with you
Killing loneliness with you

Killing loneliness
Killing loneliness

5. Dark Light

Shivers run through the spine
Of hope as she cries
The poisoned tears of a life denied
In the raven-black night
Holding hands with

Dark light
Come shine in her lost heart tonight
And blind
All fears that haunt her with
Your smile
Dark Light

In oblivions garden
Her body's on fire
Writhing to towards the angel defiled
To learn how to die
In peace with her god

Dark light
Come shine in her lost heart tonight
And blind
All fears that haunt her with
Your smile
Dark Light

6. Drunk On Shadows

Hiding underneath
The veil of broken dreams
We find her weeping

On her once white wings
She'll be carrying the weight of our deeds
And she bleeds for love
Forever gone

Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie
Killing ourselves a kiss at a time
Devils dance while angels smile
Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie

Finding souls to feed
The nightside of Eden
We see her struggling
For her love's
Last breath and walk off

Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie
Killing ourselves a kiss at a time
Devils dance while angels smile
Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie

She's blinded by the fear
Of life and death and everything in between
We smile when she cries a river of tears
A mirror we see nothing but a reflection of heaven so far away

Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie
Killing ourselves a kiss at a time
Devils dance while angels smile
Drunk on shadows and lost in a lie
So alive
(Drunk on shadows)
So alive




Song Info
About the song, Ville says it sounded like Beach Boys started playing heavy metal before Black Sabbath. There is a lot of harmony, but they wanted to have a creeping and cinematographic sound.

7. Under The Rose

I dream of the winter in my heart turning to spring
While the ice gives way under my feet
And so I drown with the sun

I've been burning in water and drowning in flame
To prove you wrong and scare you away
I admit my defeat and want back home
In your heart under the rose

I open my eyes with a sigh of relief
As the warmth of summer sunlight dances around me
And I see you with dead leaves in your hands

I've been burning in water and drowning in flame
To prove you wrong and scare you away
I admit my defeat and want back home
In your heart under the rose (Repeat 3x)

Your heart under the rose
Your heart under the rose
Your heart under the rose
Your heart under the rose




Song Info
About the song, Ville says when he was working on this he had Street Spirit stuck in the head. It's really sad, but it has a punkish heavy-rock spund. They used electronics for the first time. A sort of Massive Attack on a bad day.
Played for the first time in Portsmouth, UK, 10/02/2004.

8. Play Dead

A moth into a butterfly
And a lie into the sweetest truth
I'm so afraid of life

I try
To call your name but I'm
Silenced by the fear of dying in your heart once again

I see the seasons changing
And in the heart of this autumn I fall
With the leaves from the trees

I play dead
To hide my heart
Until the world gone dark fades away

I cry
Like god cries the rain
And I'm just one step away
From the end of today

I see the reasons changing
And in the warmth of the past I crawl
Scorched by the shame

I play dead
To hide my heart
Until the world gone dark fades away
And I stay dead
Until you veil my scars and say goodbye to fate
Before it's too late
Before it's too late

I play dead
To hide my heart
Until the world gone dark fades away
I stay dead
Until you veil my scars and say goodbye to fate
I play dead
To hide my heart
Until the world gone dark fades away
Before it's too late


Song Info
About the song, Ville says this is the only ballad of the album, it's something like Sweet Pandemonium. It's a fusion of This Mortal Coil and Black Sabbath - a kind of lullaby that we would never play for children.

9. The Face Of God

I'm drained but aching for more
And the devil inside is reading
The words of the saddest poem
To be engraved on the stone of my grave.

I'd kill to share your pain,
[And carry the shame]
And sell my soul for you just to say...

I dream what you're dreaming,
And feel what you're feeling,
Love's our shadow on the wall
With the face of
God

Nothing will be enough
For the ones Who keep on stumbling
In the garden of withering trust
Without the courage to leave.

Oh, I'd take my life for your kiss,
[Grant me my wish]
And lose it all to take you across
the abyss...   

I dream what you're dreaming,
And feel what you're feeling,
Love's our shadow on the wall
With the face of
God

You dream what I'm dreaming,
And see what I'm seeing,
Love's our shadow on the wall
With the face of
God

Labrynth in a shape of a heart
Love's secret architecture,
I find myself to be lost in the
Arms of your fate.

I'd kill to share you pain
[And carry the shame]
And sell my soul for you just to say:

Love's name in vein
Again and again...

Ahahah

I dream what you're dreaming,
And feel what you're feeling,
Love's our shadow on the wall
With the face of
God

You dream what I'm dreaming,
And see what I'm seeing,
Love's our shadow on the wall
With the face of
God
Love's our shadow on the wall
With the face of
[Face of]

The face of
[Face of]
God

Face of
God...

10. In The Night Side Of Eden

Divided we stand in light of a frozen sun
Cursing the gods we have become
We steal the fire from a sacred heart
And bleed the wine unholy
We fall in love with the serpent's song
And fear nothing

In the nightside of eden
We're born again
Dead
Forever we are
Forever we've been
Forever we'll be crucified to a dream
The nightside of eden

Deranged, we're tearing away the petals of desire
Learning the mathematics of evil by heart
We decieve ourselves to start a war
Within the realm of senses
And descend to the circle number four
Where we are nothing

In the nightside of eden
We're born again
Dead
Forever we are
Forever we've been
Forever we'll be crucified to a dream
The nightside of eden

In the nightside of eden
We're born again
Dead
Forever we are
Forever we've been
Forever we'll be crucified to a dream
The nightside of eden
Forever we are
Forever we've been
Forever we'll be crucified to a dream
The nightside of eden

Forever we are
Forever we've been
Forever we'll be crucified to a dream


Song Info
About the song Ville says this is their epic story and they have even a choir! It's about having a dream but nobody knows what a dream is, it's about the policies of the heart, but it's not not politic.
On www.buzznet.com, in an interview on The Chord Magazine, Ville says that In the Nightside of Eden talks about the pressure that society makes on young people. If you do not go to university and become a doctor you are worthless. To fell complete, you must have the latest Lexus model, or you are nothing. We are crucifixes to our dreams. We lose faith in life or the will to live because of these pressures. Everybody has his passions, and you have to give them space to think and breath, rather than make them do things for which they weren't born.

11. Venus (In Our Blood)

Her heaven's a lie to those who threw away the key
Her god is alive and well when the higher believe
And he can bend the river of her dreams
Or understand the devine words she speaks

Venus defends your severe tides upon dark waters
You can quench your thirst with the fear hiding away from the day
The venus denies you in your dark waters
The moon kissed the sun and now we hold her in our blood

Her insignia was never on a cross peirced with nails
Thirty peices of silver never retraced her mistake
She'll always be free from the arms of your sins
That made you weak as your world started crumbling

Venus defends your severe tides upon dark waters
You can quench your thirst with the fear hiding away from the day
The venus denies you in your dark waters
The moon kissed the sun and now we hold her in our blood

(She's in our blood)
Venus defends your severe tides upon dark waters
You can quench your thirst with the fear hiding away from the day
The venus denies you in your dark waters
The moon kissed the sun and now we hold her in our blood
In our blood
In our blood
In our blood
(She's in our blood)

12. The Cage

For years I've seen you fighting
Against your heart
Living like you're dieing
So far from the sun

Waiting for a gaurdian angel
To lead you through the dangers
The light ahead on your way
Towards tomorrows of...

Tears have turned free to sigh on our todays
You're hiding yourself away
From our cruel world we'll face
And as your days turn to weeks
You'll cry yourself to sleep
In the cage


We all have our fears we gaze on
The scariest of them all
Lift your head and let us taste
The more you adore

And it all starts to makes sense
All the blood wisely shed
Just wait untill the cure comes knocking on your door

Tears have turned free to sigh on our todays
You're hiding yourself away
From our cruel world we'll face
And as your days turn to weeks
You'll cry yourself to sleep
In the cage

Tears have turned free to sigh on our todays
You're hiding yourself away
From our cruel world we'll face
And as your days turn to weeks
You'll cry yourself to sleep
In the cage
And as your days turn to weeks
You'll cry yourself to sleep
In the cage you've locked yourself in
